Gunmen in western Mexico have killed 12 policemen investigating the beheadings of 10 other people.

The officers were attacked as they searched for bodies after severed heads were found near the town of Teloloapan in Guerrero state on Sunday.

Messages threatening the La Familia drug cartel were found with the heads.

Correspondents say La Familia and the Knights Templar, a rival cartel, are fighting for control of the drugs trade in Guerrero state.
